It's not great for battery life, but damn if they don't look nice. Here are eight excellent options for going high-res on your next laptop.
Still not sold on the value of having a 4K UHD-resolution display on a laptop? Maybe one of these will change your mind.
The Lenovo Yoga 910 fits more screen into less space with a 13.9-inch display in the body of a 13-inch laptop.
The 2-in-1 design lets you use the 3,840x2,160-pixel touch display as a tablet, though it doesn't have the graphics chops to handle anything too demanding like gaming at its full resolution.
The smaller Spectre's 13.3-inch 3,840x2,160 touch display works great as a tablet and supports pen input.
Unfortunately, like other 4K laptops, its battery life is much shorter than its full HD-resolution counterpart.
One of the best uses for a 4K display is for editing photos. The extra resolution lets you zoom in and examine fine details, such as on Wacom's Windows tablet PC.
The 15.6-inch 3,840x2,160 touch display is great for illustration, too, and gives you extra space for tool panels you wouldn't have at lower resolutions.
The Blade Pro's 17.3-inch touch-screen display (3,840x2,160 pixels) produced vivid colors and sharp fine details that pay off when you're taking advantage of the GeForce GTX 1080's capabilities.
The ultrapremium laptop is only available with this 4K screen.
The larger Spectre x360's 15.6-inch 3,840x2,160 touch display has a color gamut of 72 percent of Adobe RGB (which is very similar to DCI P3, the 4K standard).
It's responsive for both pen and touch, and not exceptionally reflective, with good contrast and saturation that should work for watching video, surfing the web and working.
The 17-inch 3,840x2,160-pixel display on the Omen lets you sink into your gaming experience.
It's sharp with excellent color performance and the system's 8GB Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 is strong enough to run demanding games at the screen's full resolution at high settings.
The Folio G1 has a gorgeous 12.5-inch 3,840x2,160-pixel touchscreen that goes nearly edge to edge.
However, as with other 4K versus FHD (full HD) comparisons we've tested, the 4K display takes a big chunk out of battery life.
Though you might think of Razer's laptops as strictly for gaming, the 13-inch 3,840x2,160-pixel touchscreen on the Stealth is good enough for professional use.
The 4K screen can show a full 100 percent of the Adobe RGB color gamut.
The XPS 15 for 2017 features a 15.6-inch, 3,840x2,160-pixel touch display.
The laptop screen has hardware calibration support, 100 percent Adobe RGB and most of the DCI-P3 coverage and excellent accuracy.
